Myles Connor–a legendary art thief, because he wrote a book about being a legendary art thief–was arrested after a robbery attempt in Massachusetts. Unlike the many┬áillustrious and thrilling exploits detailed in The Art of the Heist, this was no MoMA, this was no MET and no Smithsonian. Connor, 69, the man who once yanked a Rembrandt right off a wall in broad daylight was apprehended after robbing two women outside a convenience store in Woonsocket, R.I. with a 9mm firearm-looking pellet gun. And all he got was a cellphone. Oh, irony.

Well, not so much. Police say this was “a dispute over narcotics” and Connor has been snagged for such silliness before, like this one time during a cocaine bust. Womp.
